access to the water. We recommend diving booties because of
the sea grass. You and the kids can catch some wonderful
snorkeling just a few feet from your condo's front door! Many
enjoy fishing right off our 300 foot dock because the water is so
clear you can actually watch the fish as they bite your line.
